Apparently, it’s hard to keep a good soldier (and movie!) down: Captain America: The Winter Soldier brought in an estimated $9.57 million for Disney/Marvel on Friday night, keeping it in the top spot for its third week in release. The movie — directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring Chris Evans as the ever-likeable Steve Rogers — has been well-received by critics and audiences (it has an A Cinemascore) and is on pace to cross the magic $200 million mark this weekend.

House of Cards actress Kate Mara tried to prank Kevin Spacey during their sex scenes by wearing nipple pasties with Spacey’s face on them. “Of course, because Kevin wants to win whatever the game is and because he always wins, he did not laugh.” [Us Magazine] Sure, it must be great to be Anne Hathaway, but what if you’re a normal person whose name also happens to be Anne Hathaway?

Director Christopher Nolan is known for the secrecy that surrounds the production of his films. Think locked rooms, surreptitiously delivered scripts, each page watermarked with the name of the actor, and endings that are verbally delivered. In fact, during the filming of the final scene from The Dark Knight Rises (Spoiler), Christian Bale was on set in order to prevent leaks about the ending. Although, considering the recent escapade surrounding the Quentin Tarantino Hateful Eight leak, one can never be too careful. Nolan has been as evasive as ever about Interstellar, which will be his first film since the end of The Dark Knight Trilogy in 2012. But, since the release of the teaser trailer in December, hints about the up coming science fiction picture are slowly beginning to emerge.
“We have always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible.” So begins the teaser to Interstellar. What follows is »

Come With Me To Days Of Future Past!
Did anyone else notice that the last trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past was scored by a remix of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” but at a faster tempo with modern instrumentation, so it instantly called to mind the last modernized-up-tempo “Kashmir.” It was called “Come With Me” and was a track for 1998′s Godzilla.
Check out the video for that, in case you don’t remember.
Ok, then here’s the Days of Future Past “final trailer”

Let it be known—the '90s are back and better than ever! It's hard to believe the old school decade is resurfacing on the style scene, but one glance at celebs like Kim Kardashian, Emma Roberts and Anne Hathaway, and it's completely confirmed. Several stylish stars have been embracing the retro looks with vigor, wearing plaid flannels, tough combat boots, floral prints and gothic-inspired styles this spring.

Selena Gomez and Olivia Palermo both masterfully pull off the look without looking totally out of their elements. Our advice: Just »

Animation sequel posts a lukewarm opening weekend as Marvel's superhero epic continues to freeze out all competition
Rio 2 leads Easter charge in the UK
It's looking good for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Two weeks in and the record April release has soared to within $17m of the final tally of its 2011 predecessor. A respectable 56% drop allowed Marvel's golden boy to add an estimated $41.4m to reach $159m (£95m). There was a sense with the original Captain America that the movie lacked the firepower and sassiness of its Marvel stablemates, but the sequel is on course for a $200m-plus finish that should see it rank above both Thor movies. The Avengers, Iron Man and The Amazing Spider-Man remain the jewels in the crown but Captain America is shining bright.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” surged on Saturday to post a $41.4 million come-from-behind victory over the 3D animated family musical “Rio 2,” and post its second straight weekend win at the box office. It looked as if it would be one-and-done at No. 1 for Disney's Marvel superhero sequel after “Rio 2,” from Fox's Blue Sky Studios, surprisingly took the lead on Friday. And with families expected to provide a Saturday-Sunday bump, the singing parrots — voiced by Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg — appeared to have the inside track. But it was “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” that saw »

"Rio 2" flew to the top of the box office on Friday, narrowly beating Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." The animated sequel picked up $12 million on its first Friday night, while "Captain" earned another $11.9 million. "Rio 2" will likely earn around $45 million for the weekend, significantly ahead of 2011's "Rio," which debuted to $39.2 million, and ultimately made $143 million in North America. It features the voices of Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, and more. Now in its second week of release, "Captain" -- starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford and Samuel L. Jackson -- will likely earn around $42 million over the next three days. The Marvel sequel's domestic total currently stands at a hefty $129.5 million. It will have no trouble topping the original film's total domestic gross of $176 million. Relativity's low budget horror film "Oculus" has already earned back its estimated $5 million production budget, after scaring up $4.9 million last night. »

You have to love the fact that there are still production companies out there not named “Disney” or “Pixar” that know how to create a solid animated film. Dreamworks is a current powerhouse with the recent release of Mr. Peabody & Sherman and the How to Train Your Dragon sequel due in June. Even Laika (Coraline/Paranorman) has The Boxtrolls coming out this September. Luckily, Blue Sky also succeeded its latest masterpiece, Epic, with Rio 2, the sequel to 2011’s Rio.
Rio 2 follows Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Anne Hathaway), and their three children as they journey across Brazil to find their long-lost family in the Amazon Rainforest. When they arrive, things aren’t as great as they seem, as Blu doesn’t quite fit in with the other macaws. And there’s also a gang of evildoers terrorizing the rainforest with chainsaws, explosives, and other nature-slaying equipment.
As with its predecessor, »

The lighthearted family toon grossed $12 million, edging out the politically-infused superhero pic’s $11.9 million Stateside haul. “Rio 2,” which brought in $375,000 from Thursday night shows, also looks to dominate in the weekend box office. It’s on track for $44 million, versus the “Captain America” sequel’s $41 million. Distributors had expected the opposite turnout leading into the weekend and had underestimated the earning potential of both movies.
“Rio 2” is coming in strong for a family film considering the fact that theater-goers usually skew older on Fridays, an advantage for “Captain America.” There will likely be a spike in attendance on Saturday and the movie looks to bring in strong earnings next weekend when the number of »

Brazilian filmmaker Carlos Saldanha's new family film Rio 2 flew to the top of the Friday box office with $12 million from 3,938 theaters, enough to beat holdover Captain America: The Winter Soldier and putting the 3D animated film on course for a strong $45 million domestic debut. The Fox Animation and Blue Sky sequel, returning Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway in the voice leads and earning an A CinemaScore across demos, opens exactly three years after the first movie took in $39 million on its first weekend domestically. Rio 2 began rolling out in select foreign markets late

A giant printed ponch, a peek-a-boo crop top and a crazy cutout gown -- stars are rocking all the wrong trends this week!Anne Hathaway is known for her elegant red carpet style, but she landed on the worst dressed this week for sporting a giant aztec-printed poncho after an appearance on "Good Morning America" on Tuesday. The actress added even more pattern with a black-and-white, checkered handbag, completing her bizarre ensemble with thick round-framed glasses. Time for a new stylist!Naya Rivera raised some eyebrows on the red carpet at Marie Claire's Fresh Faces Party on Tuesday, rocking a cream Philosophy top with a very open slit down the side, black grunge-inspired capri pants and black stilettos. We know she loves to show off her killer bod, but it looks like she cut that slit herself. And Shakira caught everyone's attention at the Academy of Country Music Awards on »

Anne Hathaway made sure to take some time out of her busy schedule to pay a special visit to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. The Oscar winner surprised the young patients and shared some heartwarming moments on Wednesday afternoon. In one photograph, the 31-year-old grinned widely as she posed with a young girl named Breanna. The actress also gave a little boy named Tyler a touching embrace in another sweet snapshot. Hathaway, who is a longtime supporter of the hospital, also treated the children and their families to an exclusive screening of her newly released film Rio 2. Hathaway provides the voice of the parrot Jewel, the rare blue macaw in the kid-friendly animated flick. »

"One of these days I'm going to come back, and I'm going to save you... if you're lucky." The first trailer has arrived for an indie comedy called Don Peyote, written & directed by Michael Canzoniero & Dan Fogler, which is some kind of crazy, wacky, drug-trip dramedy starring Fogler as Warren Allman, an "unemployed stoner who finally finds a purpose in life" after a run in with a homeless man that gives him some kind of power, it looks like. The supporting cast is promising: Anne Hathaway, Jay Baruchel, Josh Duhamel, Topher Grace and Wallace Shawn. Doesn't look too bad, but I'm still unsure about Fogler in a lead role. Here's the first promo trailer for Michael Canzoniero & Dan Fogler's Don Peyote, found via YouTube: Don Peyote tells the story Warren Allman (Fogler), an unemployed stoner who finally finds a purpose in life after an unpleasant encounter with a homeless »
